Myth II:

Index Chimera:
The Healer

THE FORGE This is level twenty-five of
   Myth II: Soulblighter.
Go to the Journal for literature and interpretation of the level.

Most of the interesting things on this level are mapmaking tricks, but there is one true easter egg as well.
IMAGE

The Myth engine cannot have truely overlapping spaces, such as bridges which you can walk over and under. Models, such as this, are truely 3D, but meshes (and thus units on them) are limited to an extruded 2D surfaces.
IMAGE
You would then think that since you can walk under this arch, that you could not in turn walk over it.
IMAGE
And yet you can! How? Notice the rocks below it, and that the top and bottom walkable areas of this bridge look very similar. The mesh is actually rising up to the top level when you can't see it, and the model is animating to put those rocks there, so that you can't try to walk under it again.
IMAGE
Finally, in the far northeast, you can see that fisherman from Willow Creek, fishing in the ol' lava hole! We've truely come full circle.

Legends and Lore is really Forrest's baby, though Gholsbane probably does more work on it nowadays. It also contains a lot of work from the Myth Nontoxic days whose exact authors have been lost or forgotten. Some of these lemurs include Joshstar, Orange, Lacrymosa, and poena.dare. Original "Journal of the Legion" concept by poena.dare and Hamish Sinclair. Other authors are credited as appropriate in their individual articles.

Myth at Bungie.org is now maintained almost entirely by Gholsbane and Zandervix; Forrest is (theoretically) still around calling the shots when he can be bothered to check his email, and Claude, as always, OWNZ U. Original Nontoxic™ webpage design copyright (c) 1998 by Joshstar; updates and revisions mostly by Forrest. Many thanks to all those old Nontoxic™ munkies - you know who you are.
